NEW DIRECTIONS IN CINEMA presents:
Why Always Instead of Just Sometimes;
selected works by Deirdre Logue

 

New Directions in Cinema is a screening series presented by LIFT showcasing long time members and their innovative film works – filmmakers whose work bypasses traditional structures and techniques. Deirdre Logue’s most recent film projects include a series dedicated to the challenges of the everyday and the monster in all of us. Why Always Instead of Just Sometimes is a series of super 8, 16mm and video works along with a film installation using multiple images.

 

Deirdre Logue has spent the past 15 years working on behalf of media artists by organizing independent film, video and new media festivals, by founding collectives and by participating in forums and symposiums on the future of independent artistic practice. She was the Executive Director of the Images Festival of Independent Film and Video from 1995-1999 and currently holds the position of Executive Director at the Canadian Filmmakers’ Distribution Centre. She is also a filmmaker and has actively exhibited her work since 1990.

 

Deirdre is perhaps best known for her series of short, handmade, performance films entitled ‘Enlightened Nonsense’ completed in 2000. Numerous exhibitions of her individual films and video’s have taken place nationally at YYZ Artist Outlet in Toronto, Neutral Ground in Regina, SAW Gallery in Ottawa, Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery in Halifax and SAW Gallery in Ottawa as well as internationally at Centre d’art Contemporain in France, the San Francisco Cinematheque, Video Ex in Switzerland, the Honolulu Academy of Art in Hawaii, Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania and as part of a recent Canadian video exchange in Cairo, Egypt, to name a few. Her works are distributed by V Tape in Toronto.
